Red Bull Cliff Diving – Copenhagen
Last weekend the water bound city of Copenhagen hosted the second round of the LifeProof Sponsored Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. White knuckle moments were a plenty with the incredible show of acrobatic bravery in gusty conditions.
The World’s best divers took to the iconic Copenhagen Opera House to dive from a height of 28m into the chilly waters of the Mollean River set against the backdrop of the city’s historic Royal Palace.
As the action unfolded LifeProof Athlete Jonathan Paredes who was sitting in 1st position coming into the second round put on another heroic performance despite the testing weather conditions. Jonathan didn’t quite make 1st place in this round as the reigning champion Gary Hunt showed that he still has what it takes to win. Finishing the day in an impressive 3rd place behind Gary Hunt and competition wildcard Kris Kolanus, Parades hit the podium for the second time this season.
This awesome performance from Jonathan sees him at 1st place in the overall Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series standings as we move towards the third stop in the Azores, Portugal.
“I’m super happy, because of the difficult weather conditions getting this result here means so much to me. I’ve never made the podium here before, so today I’m super happy.” – Jonathan Paredes
